User Roles

Last Edit: Jun 06 2020

Here is a list of all user roles, please keep in mind that the moderator role can also be granted for some specific channels. As explained in other parts of the docs, role management can only be done using server-side authentication from your backend.

Role Name

API Name

Admin

This role allows users to perform more advanced actions. This role should be granted only to staff users

Moderator

User

This is the default role assigned to any user.

Guest

Anonymous

At the moment we don't support custom roles, this is high on our roadmap!
